Associated Press to Launch NFT Marketplace

The Associated Press launched a marketplace for non-fungible tokens (NFTs) beginning Jan. 31, featuring its “award-winning contemporary and historical photojournalism.”

The partnership with blockchain technology company Xooa allows users to buy, sell and trade NFTs using crypto wallets or traditional credit cards. The first group will include digitally enhanced work from AP photographers, covering topics such as space, climate, and war. Each NFT will display the original metadata of the image, including the location, equipment, camera settings, and the time and date the image was taken.
